Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio Tik'al is one of the largest pre-Columbian sites. It is located in the archaeological region of the Petén Basin in what is now Guatemala. The ruins lie among the tropical rainforests that formed the hearth of lowland Maya civilisation. Tik'al reached its peak during the Classic Period (CE 200 to CE 900). During this time, the city dominated the Maya region militarily, economically and politically. A dynastic line has been established for the city, including at least 33 rulers spanning 800 years. Studies of hieroglyphic inscriptions found at the site indicate that the city was then known as Yax Mutal or Yax Mutul. The site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1979. Here photographed the 47m (154ft) high Temple 1 (also known as the Temple of Ah Cacao or Temple of the Great Jaguar) seen from Temple 2. The structure is a funerary pyramid dedicated to Jasaw Chan K'awil, who was entombed in the structure in AD 734. To the left are some of the stelae (carved stone shafts, often sculpted with figures and hieroglyphs) that front the Northern Acropolis.
